His long industry experience and direct knowledge of the major customer base will help to strengthen Tefron's turnaround program and especially in improving our service to customers. I have great respect for Arnon, having seen his constructive influence on the Board of Directors at NILIT, where I managed the fiber division, and I look forward to working with Arnon now even more closely to take Tefron forward in its restructuring program."
